#RPGaDAY2021 Day 27 Fraction

RPGaDAY2021 Day 27

This one took a lot longer to write than expected, and sadly, not one I really wanted to write.

Day 27 Fraction

I love doing blog challenges, blog hops, and themed posts.  It gives me something to look forward to, something new to write about, and it lets me interact with others that I might not be interacting with or even knew before.

Sadly. I am also only getting a Fraction of the interaction here. 

My Twitter posting is way up and my interactions there have increased by about x3 to x4 in this month.  But here? Sadly crickets.

I am not sure why that is, to be honest.  I know there is a faction among the RPG bloggers that hated the April A to Z.  Again it was something I enjoyed, but I saw the drop in interactions and in daily visits. 

It is disappointing. I want to keep my regular readers happy. I also want to expand my reader base.  Interactions from both help me write more and maybe cover topics I might not otherwise cover.

So help me out here.

Do you like these social-media-wide themed months like this and the April AtoZ?

Do you like my other themed months or weeks like I did with BECMI in June 2020 or Troll Week or my week with Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft?

Let me know!

First of all I want to apologise for not commenting on any of your #RPGaDay posts sooner.

Of the four people I follow closely who were taking part in the campaign this year, two have dropped out before reaching the end.

As to interactions in general, I'm beginning to wonder if we are seeing the end of 'amateur press' blogging. These last few weeks I've hardly posted anything substantive, bar some picture posts and other eye candy, and have gone days without posting anything, and yet my hits are still averaging well over 1,000-a-day, often on the same collection of old posts. This cries "bot" to me. Of course, a hit is a hit - and I'll take it - but that's purely an ego boost. Yet between the bots and spam posters, I'm unable to gauge the true breadth of my readership between a handful of highly-appreciated loyal stalwarts.
